Any creative effort comes with a certain level of anxiety.  Courage in Creativity teaches us to use that anxiety to fuel our inspiration in a judgment-free space. In this three-hour workshop, we learn abstract techniques, paint with 40+ fabulous paint colors (including metallics), and work with a variety of brushes, tools, and textures before creating our own masterpieces. Courage in Creativity is for all levels - beginners to professionals. We learn, laugh, and paint cool art. Join us!

In this new workshop, we’re going to experiment with fabulous new tools and techniques. We’ll play with layering and excavating to create greater texture and depth. We’ll pile on metallic paints and chunky texture mediums, attach cool collage papers, and use funky drawing materials to explore the endless possibilities of abstract - far beyond rules and design principles If you’ve taken Courage in Creativity with Paula, this is a wonderful next step to learning and trying even more abstract techniques.
If you haven’t taken Courage in Creativity, this is a fabulous start to playing with abstract art! All techniques are easy to use, for anyone at any level. No experience preferred!
